|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Luna’s first session was loose lead walking. Luna pulled quite strongly so the trainer worked in a small area to help Luna engage and not pull. Being able to do basic obedience around other dogs will help Luna learn to tune those distractions into background noise. By the end of the session Luna was walking much better, even with a dog barking in the background. At home focus of getting Luna to walk well and increase distractions slowly.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Next up was place. Again using basic obedience to help focus on the job Luna has to do means she was less likely to worry about dogs around her. The trainer did this session outside with another dog being trained nearby. Luna was quite vocal during this session but not towards the other dog. Just in general. Luna worked hard in this session, but did break a number of times as she was distracted by the other dog. The trainer increased the distance from the other dog and although still looking at the other dog Luna was able to hold place better. When practicing this at home make sure you move place to different parts of the house to give Luna different distractions.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: As Luna has the joint issues the trainer didn’t feel that drop would be wise. So the trainer did another session of loose lead walking. But this time down the main aisle of the kennel. Again working in a short area of the aisle it didn’t take long for Luna to be walking well. The kennel was very noisy and dogs quite close to where Luna was walking. Luna did a great job but got very distracted when other staff members came near. It took a bit to then get Luna to engage again and she was distracted then by the other dogs. The trainer went back to walking in a small area and worked up to where Luna was before being interrupted. Luna was able to end the session well and focused. Amazing work Luna.||Focus: Distraction||B|
